Cyberpunk 2077 for Stadia

CD Projekt RED’s open-world epic may not be the genre-defining revolution many had hoped for, but the Stadia version plays excellently. While the PS4 and Xbox One editions suffer from horrible performance issues and many bugs, the Stadia version is comparable to playing on a gaming PC. It is arguably the best way to play the game. I greatly enjoyed it in my review and am excited to see it

Action-horror at its finest:
Resident Evil Village

Resident Evil Village continues the story of Ethan Winters and his family dealing with the fallout from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Unlike Biohazard, Resident Evil Village focuses much more on the action-horror aspect of the classic franchise, giving players some incredible moments to play through as they explore a castle filled with terrifying (and tall) vampires, a village overrun by Lycans, and much more.

Gather your party:
Baldur’s Gate 3 (Early Access) for Stadia

Staff Pick

The developers behind the critically-acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin series have taken the reins of the iconic Dungeons & Dragons universe in this fantastic feast of turn-based tactics and excellent storytelling. Even though it’s still in Early Access, Larian’s Baldur’s Gate 3 is already shaping up to be another RPG masterpiece from one of the genre’s greats. It also plays perfectly on Stadia via PC and has surprisingly good controller support. It’s not on consoles yet, so this is the only way to play the game without a gaming PC.

Dawn of the Dark Ages:
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla for Stadia

There have been many great Assassin’s Creed games, many of which are on Stadia, but the recent Valhalla is excellent in its own right. It’s an epic Viking story that puts you in the shoes of Eivor, a Viking warrior hellbent on revenge and conquering the lands of England. It continues the franchise’s diversion into the open-world RPG genre and streamlines many elements to make it one of the best in the entire series. If you sign up for Ubisoft on Stadia, you can play many Assassin’s Creed games for one low subscription fee.

Silent assassin:
Hitman 3 for Stadia

As the first games on Stadia to employ the innovative new State Share feature, the Hitman games are must-plays. They collectively offer incredible moments of espionage that make you feel like a master assassin, and they’re some of the best-looking games on the platform. Hitman 3 is the latest and best, with Hitman 1-2 available at no extra cost with a Stadia Pro membership.

Game creation for all:
Create for Stadia

Think of Crayta as a combination of the world-building and game-creation toolset of something like Roblox. Still, it’s distilled into an accessible and appealing format with Fortnite-style visuals. You can crack open the editor on PC to get into the nuts and bolts or hop on for some quick and easy fun with friends. Crayta is whatever you want it to be, and now it’s free for anyone and everyone on Stadia, not just Pro subscribers. Here’s your family-friendly entry on the list.
